Shakespeare's Advice to the Players (Absolute Classic)

Shakespeare's Advice to the Players (Absolute Classic)

by N/A


Shakespeare tells the actor when to go fast and when to go slow; when to pause, when to come in on cue and when to accent a word. His text is full of such clues. He tells the actor when but never tells him why or how. That is up to the actor. It is much like making a musical score live; Shakespeare heard the lines as he wrote them. It is also a celebration of Peter Hall as the greatest living director of Shakespeare, from his early days at Cambridge, through founding the RSC at Stratford-upon-Avon, and later to his fifteen years as Director of the National Theatre.
